The 12 songs on this album are of surprising interest, though you'd have to look hard to see why amid the plethora of latter-day Bill Haley material on the market. Later in his career, Haley cut any number of live and studio recordings, re-creating his '50s hits which have been repackaged countless times, but Mister Rock 'N' Roll is made up of a dozen of the sides that he cut for Mexico's Orfeon label during the mid-'60s, when he and his band were still arguably near their prime and before they were relegated to the oldies circuit.

The band here is pretty solid; in addition to Haley on vocals and rhythm guitar, Frannie Beecher is present on lead guitar, Johnny Grande on accordion, Billy Williamson on Fabulous - Happyhead - Give Happyhead guitar, and Rudy Pompilli on saxophone.
Beecher 's lead playing is always interesting and is particularly worthwhile on "ABC Boogie," where he takes off on a brief jazz flight on what is otherwise one of Haley 's more lugubrious numbers. A horn section is present on a few of the tracks, but mostly not obtrusively so, and most of this record is just the band playing what amounts to a pretty tight set. The sound has been processed through the CEDAR noise-reduction system and the result is a clean CD, and one at least worth consideration by serious fans though the ready availability of Haley 's classic Decca sides makes Mister Rock 'N' Roll sort of superfluous.
